Samsung sold 29.6 percent of all smartphones last quarter

Written by Slobodan Simic

Others stuck below 5 percent

According to a report from DRAMeXchange, global smartphone shipments were up to 216.4 million units and Samsung shipped 29.6 percent of all smartphones in Q1 2013. While other manufacturers were meddling with below 5 percent figures, excluding Apple, Samsung was selling its smartphones like hotcakes.

Actually, Samsung's global shipements dropped by 0.1 percent and while Apple followed in the second place with 15.3 percent of all shipped smartphones in Q1 2013, it is quite a noticeable drop from 18.8 percent it had last year. Nokia and HTC exchanged places but only barely as HTC had 4.4 percent while Nokia had to settle with 4.3 percent. Lenovo can be considered a big winner as it managed to climb few places up but as it is with Huawei, Sony, LG and ZTE, we are still looking at numbers at or below 4 percent.

"Other" manufacturers shipments rose from 17.9 percent in Q1 2012 up to 23.9 percent. It would be quite interesting to see the same report once first wave of HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphones start to sell this quarter.
